Gazza's tears after England's exit in the semi-finals of the 1990 World Cup helped kick-start the Premier League boom years. Paul Gascoigne restored pride in a sport that was often seen as the reserve of hooligans in the '70s and '80s. Gazza received his second caution of the tournament in the game and it meant he would be ruled out of the final if England qualified (which they didn't). It seemed to upset him, greatly.
